His Facade, Not Yours


He told me he only listened to you because you were sad and lonely
How could he

He doesn’t see you for you
That you’re sure of your being
And he isn’t

Now I see
Why family
Work and security
Are your true loves in life

People don’t see you
For the person you are
You are –

True. And you.
And I see that you are everything but sad and lonely
